Claveys Farm is situated in the south west corner of Mells, a small picturesque village, south west of Frome in the South West of England. The six bedroomed farm house is early C18 with some C17 elements. It is stone built with stone tiled roofs. The front of the house has mullion windows and a beautiful curved hood above the front door. There is a back farmyard, now lawned over perfect for eating out on, surrounded by barns, one of which is home to chickens, ducks and the odd turkey. The painting studio is within the house. To the east of the house is a large flower garden and lawn, kitchen garden, an pig, sheep & goose paddock partly visible from the large bay window of the relaxing sitting room and library.
